Improved KDE integration for GIMP and Inkscape

Feature state

Rejected Information


GIMP and Inkscape need better integration into KDE, namely its "Open file" dialogue is stuck in GNOME look. Firefox and OpenOffice have their own wrappers, which integrate their corresponding action into KDE. GIMP and Inkscape are programs which would benefit greatly from native KDE image thumbnails.

User benefit:

We want this because it helps to create more coherent and unified feel for whole desktop. People doing advanced graphic work with GIMP and/or Inkscape would most definitely appreciate the superior native KDE image thumbnail preview provided in its native "Open file" dialogue. openSUSE would benefit by having more professional feel to it.

I mentioned GIMP in my own request for better KDE integration of Thunderbird:


With openSUSE now being considered one of the best distros for KDE users, integration of a few more major apps like these could reinforce that notion and make the distro stand out above the others in this regard.

Maybe the solution would be something like http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=36077 ?

Doing wrappers individually for each application doesn't seem like a great idea -- in Firefox's and Openoffice's case, the wrappers do more than change the file open dialogues, so they might be justified.

That would be great to integrate into default KDE desktop in 11.4 for streamlining. It should be tested for conflicts with existing QtGTK-application wrappers (namely OOo and Firefox), however.
